Achieve Innovation Impact

Today’s Corporate Venture Capitalists (CVCs) are playing increasingly influential and high value roles in the global investment ecosystem, participating in more than 25% of Venture Capital (VC) deals. A distinguishing characteristic of high performing Corporate Venture (CV) programs is an end-to-end investing approach that is fundamental to both portfolio financial performance and the delivery of the ultimate strategic impact needed to ensure CV program longevity. Recent years have seen the formalization of sophisticated professional CVBD groups tasked with driving both parent and external ecosystem engagement and accelerating investment portfolio lead time to value. Establishing a common corporate venturing language and an understanding of its unique characteristics allows all involved parties to work together impactfully and deliver the promised value.

CVBD is a middleman function which involves the alignment of multiple stakeholders.

“Having that shared experience among the three members representing both parents and our team and developing the common language so they understood the work that had to happen from all sides—it was a huge benefit. And already we’re seeing benefits come back to our organization from the best practices and benchmarking our team was able to do, through the mentorship she received, through exposure to other programs—it has been immediately accretive to our program internally.”

“If you look at the realities of COVID-19, particularly for programs with off balance sheet investment funding—CVBD is the survival piece. My parent could turn off my investment dollars and I’d still have value to deliver.”

“Advice from our amazing mentor helped us retool our Challenge and pivot from a shotgun perspective to a very targeted approach. He got us to embrace the pivot and be guided by what would get our parent partner promoted!”
